NBC Show About a PR Firm Was a Flop

NBC comedy Free Agents, the British import about a wacky PR firm with Hank Azaria and office sex, has been cancelled. The show has been losing viewers ever since it began airing September 14. And we had such high hopes, although even we forgot to watch.

Azaria tried to drum up support for the show by tweeting tune-in reminders. He then went on to thank NBC and the viewers for giving the show a chance. Azaria also voices a number of characters on The Simpsons, which may also meet its end over a money dispute with the actors.

NBC has also already cancelled The Playboy Club, which we did stumble upon a couple of times and we can confirm: It was really bad.
